This destination wedding took place at Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. Kym and Tristan traveled all the way from England to the beautiful Costa Rica and here is the result!


What made you choose Manuel Antonio for celebrating your wedding?
 We absolutely love Costa Rica due to its beautiful scenery, amazing wildlife and environmental ambition. We looked at various locations around the Country for the ceremony including Santa Teresa and Montezuma but decided upon Manuel Antonio due to the amazing beaches and the wonderful hotels, specifically Hotel Makanda.

Tell us about the day through your eyes! Our wedding mantra was, no shoes, no socks, no stress and we wanted to make both the planning of the wedding and the actual wedding day as stress free as possible. The morning of the wedding we had a long yoga session, followed by a leisurely breakfast and a dip in the pool. We then opened our cards and some presents that had been given to us whist sitting in the sun and enjoying a glass of champagne. Whilst Kym got her hair done, Tristan went for a quick surf and then ate lunch and got ready together. After a few photos at the hotel we made our way to beach where the registrar performed the 30 minute ceremony entitled ”An Oceans Blessing”. After the ceremony we had short photo session as the sun was setting and then returned to the hotel for celebratory drinks, phone calls home to family and dinner on our private terrace. We then drunk and danced the night away under the stars and went for a midnight dip in the pool. It really was beautiful and special day, full of intimancy, emotion and love and could not have been more perfect.

What were you’re favourite moment of the day? Reading our vows to each other and being pronounced husband and wife.
